    Strengths
    Shorter than scouts would prefer but has surprisingly broad shoulders and a solid frame, overall. Very good foot quickness, fluidity and speed, overall. Shows the confidence to allow even the Pac-12's fastest receivers to creep up on him in off-man coverage, turning to run with them and shadowing his opponent throughout the route. Good instincts. Reads the receiver and shows an excellent burst to break on underneath routes, such as quick outs and slants. Will bait quarterbacks to throw his way, showing the ability to undercut routes and rip at the hands of receivers as the ball arrives, resulting in many of his 25 career passes broken up (in 28 starts). Reliable open-field tackler, showing no hesitancy to take on and cut bigger ball-carriers. Gets low and wraps his arms securely around their knees, taking even big backs (and pass-catchers) to the ground quickly. Ascending football player...

    Weaknesses
    Size limitations. Is too willing to fight with receivers and wait for backs to get to him, before aggressively shedding and attempting to save yardage. Asked to play outside most of his career but might project best inside as a nickel corner at the next level. Would like to see more of those passes broken up turned into interceptions...

    Compares To: Jabari Greer, CB, New Orleans Saints
    He's not Tribble - has no drug or attitude issues and a MUCH better work ethic

    Would have preferred a PASS RUSHER to make the corners we have look better.

    There goes my boy Chris Thompson though. Good story for him. Breaks his back in 2011 comes back and has an amazing first half of the season in 2012 then tore his ACL.

    Shaun Phillips is going to Denver, signing with them end of the day

    Uhhhh that's not good, now we really don't have a pass rusher

    Jordan Mills gone.. Guess I'm not gonna stress over the next 2 picks, Telesco and McCoy are in the position they are for a reason, they have a plan.






    hopefully.

    I can't help but feel like we've got out eye on Chase Thomas. Fits that "loves the game", "football player" type prospects we've been targeting thus far. Same with Keith Pough - though given we've gone big programs so far, I doubt we see Pough come here unless it's as a UDFA.

    We got our dynamic playmaker on offense with Keenan Allen. So that's out. At this point I don't think a another dynamic weapon on offense outweighs a need for LT, or pass rusher.

    I prefer a pass rusher at this point. I don't believe in our CB situation, and a pass rusher would help our CB's a little, not mention Shaun Phillips going to Denver.

    I honestly feel like Elway's like, "Half these draft picks aren't even going to make our final 53... let's just troll the rest of the division and take the guys we figure they'll be targeting." John's that much of an arrogant choad he'd do it too.

    Not at all. Just annoyed we kept these stupid picks in our pocket while Armstead went 75. I do believe he could have started as a rookie...struggled...but started.

    OK seriously... FU Gary Kubiak. You already drafted one OT, you don't need another.
